Bible: Zech 1:2-6

1:2 The Lord was very angry with your ancestors. 1  1:3 Therefore say to the people: 2  The Lord who rules over all 3  says, “Turn 4  to me,” says the Lord who rules over all, “and I will turn to you,” says the Lord who rules over all. 1:4 Do not be like your ancestors, to whom the former prophets called out, saying, ‘The Lord who rules over all says, “Turn now from your evil wickedness,”’ but they would by no means obey me,” says the Lord. 1:5 As for your ancestors, where are they? And did the prophets live forever? 1:6 But have my words and statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, not outlived your fathers? 5  Then they paid attention 6  and confessed, ‘The Lord who rules over all has indeed done what he said he would do to us, because of our sinful ways.’
